I normally do not post any political commentary here, but I'm going to make an exception. I was looking at various new anti-net neutrality legislations in Germany, said to be made "to help fight child pornography".
What the hell. You'd almost think they were lobbied into this by some 'child porn producers association', whom complained that online CP is hurting their profits. "Our determination to fight child pornography" my ass. What happened to determination to fight child abuse? It happens in real life, you need rather difficult investigation to identify the pedophile bastards, and you need to send in some police for arrest, as opposed to asking ISP to shut down something and afterwards pretending it didn't happen.
Censoring the Internet is just silly. It is like combating evidence for the crime(photos) rather than crime itself(child abuse). It is a distraction from real issue. It does not free any children from any basements.
